View Full Version : [ubuntu] 8.10 server cannot connect to WPA ap

April 10th, 2009, 09:19 AM
I have 8.04 desktop and there is no problem with wpa.
And I decided to upgrade to 8.10 server. Hardwares are exactly same. I copied contents of /etc/network/interfaces to new ubuntu.
It's well working with open network(no wpa).

->Some noticeable messages from /etc/init.d/networking restart
wmaster0: unknown hardware address type 801
wmaster0: unknown hardware address type 801
send_packet: Network is unreachable
send_packet: please consult README file regarding broadcast address.
No DHCPOFFERS received
No working leases in persistent database - sleeping

inside /etc/network/interfaces

auto wlan3
iface wlan3 inet dhcp
wpa-driver wext
wpa-ssid home
wpa-ap-scan 2
wpa-proto WPA
wpa-pairwise TKIP
wpa-group TKIP
wpa-key-mgmt WPA-PSK
wpa-psk ee...e8

wireless device is alfa 500mw usb.

Thank you
